Ryan Litt: Second Straight Feature Win



Ryan Litt: Second Straight Feature Win

The day started off with an exciting qualifying round as Brian Gerster has set a new track record with a 12.096. This was the third week in a row that Gerster and the 50M car owner Dick Myer have celebrated the fastest car for the Auto Value Super Sprints, and the second straight track record after last weeks Berlin qualifying.   

The first heat of the night had several heavy hitters battling it out.  Anthony McCune was the ten-lap winner. Kyle Edwards had a strong second place finish followed by Brian Gerster, Jimmy McCune 4th, Derek Snyder 5th, and Frank Neil 6th

The second heat was won by Ryan Gillenwater who was chased by 2nd place Bobby Santos and 3rd place Ryan Litt. Kevin Feeney finished 4th followed by Tom Geren JR.  Doug Dietsch pull off before the start of the heat for a busted wing shock.

In the feature, spectators watched as Ryan Litt led the pack of sprints in a race that was very reminiscent of the week before at Berlin Speedway. Litt put quite a bit of space between his car and the rest of the pack as he had lapped half of the starting lineup. Lap 26 saw Kyle Edwards hit the wall hard in turns 3 and 4 bringing out the red flag.  At the time of the red flag the top five line up was Litt, Jimmy McCune, Ryan Gilenwater, Bobby Santos and Derek Snyder.

On the green flag restart, Litt took off like a rocket as McCune fought hard to maintain his second-place position with a flat left front tire.  But it was Derek Snyder who was the quicker car moving up from 5th to 3rd in the final 4 laps as McCune fell to forth.  The top 6 finishing on the final lap were Litt, Gillenwater, Snyder, McCune, Santos, and Doug Dietsch.  

After 3 weeks of the 2018 season, Ryan Litt leads the points for the series with 259, followed by Brian Gerster – 248, Bobby Santos – 245, Derek Snyder – 227, Kevin Feeney – 215, and Doug Dietsch – 208
